Hominy Creek walking track is a 5km, grade 4 Return hike located in the Popran National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.
Branching off Mount Olive trail, Hominy Creek walking track is a picturesque detour which would make any postcard jealous. The track is lined with ferns and partially shaded by majestic eucalypts, so it’s the ideal place to stroll and also to have a picnic.
Along the track, you’ll have the opportunity to stop and witness the beauty of Emerald Pool. The areas around this creek are picturesque, and it’s the perfect habitat for the green and golden bell frog, as well as the red-crowned toadlet.
